Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Hello and welcome. Unfortunately antibiotics will not regulate your cycle.

There are many causes for an irregular cycle. some of the most common are polycystic ovarian syndrome which causes a hormone imbalance and thyroid disease. One of the first steps is to see a Dr for bloodwork to rule out some of the more serious causes. Excess weight can also cause problems with irregular cycles.

In many women, no specific cause is found. The irregular cycles are annoying and unpredictable. The birth control pill can be used in most women to regulate the cycle and produce a predictable period every month.

I hope this gives you a good start.
